    If I have turmeric powder, how much should I use. Also, could this be taken daily to boost immunities and help with digestion?

      Equivalents
      As a general rule of thumb:
      1 inch fresh turmeric = 1 tablespoon freshly grated turmeric = 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
      The article I read said "When purchasing dried turmeric look to ethnic and specialty spice shops that often have fresher stock and faster turnover than regular grocery stores. Aroma is often a better indicator of quality than color, which can vary from yellow to orange. Store dried turmeric in an airtight container in a cool, dark place for up to a year." http://www.thekitchn.com/whats-the-difference-between-fresh-and-dried-turmeric-ingredient-intelligence-203090

    I've never seen regular turmeric in it's raw form. I always buy organic in ground form. Is real raw turmeric sold here on Thrive? Perhaps "organic"? I will have to look....

    Is there a substitute for the lemon juice? I am very allergic to citrus, lemons especially, but all citrus makes me break out with eczema. Why do so many tonics, good for you elixirs and juice blends have citrus in them? I am sure I am not the only one with citrus allergies.
